Batteries: Understanding the Impact they have in Our Daily Lives by Anthony Kristovich III

When one stops to consider the number of machines, gadgets and devises that we have come to depend on to get us through our day, the mind boggles. Here in Ontario, we are a little paranoid when it comes to electrical power. The news media and consumers alike carefully track the rising price of electricity. We are concerned about the future cost of electricity and we are worried that Ontario Power Generation will not be able to produce enough to meet all the needs of the province. With our fixation on electricity, sometimes we fail to consider how much we depend on batteries to provide both a primary source and supplemental source of power throughout our daily lives.

It would be difficult to find a home that did not have at least one battery-powered device. Over the last hundred years we have depended on batteries. For decades we have been using batteries to help start our cars, illuminate our flashlights, and run our battery-operated toys. Battery operated transistor radios were the iPods of the sixties. Today, batteries are used as a power source for an ever-growing range of products and devices.
All the modern-day gadgets that we have come to depend on for work and play, our cell phones, iPods, Blackberries, power tools, camcorders, cameras, watches and much more, all require batteries to run.

Manufactured with a limited life span and containing caustic material, and by their very nature, not highly recyclable, batteries do not have a great reputation with environmentalists. However, batteries play a major role in the alternative power movement and the shift toward renewable and green power sources. Today's electrical powered or hybrid cars rely on speciality batteries to store the electrical power that runs the car. Solar panels, that use the sun as a source of power, utilize batteries to store the power collect for future use. Windmills, that derive power from the wind, also store the power it generates with batteries.

There are as many different sizes and different types of batteries such as coin, lithium-ion, alkaline and rechargeable batteries, as there are applications for their use. It seems like, that for every battery-operated appliance there is a specialty battery made just for that product. Sometimes it seems like you have every single battery except the one that you require.

Our need for batteries is so great that there are now companies who deal exclusively in batteries. Due to our reliance on batteries, finding a quality battery store is crucial. Some key factors to keep in mind when finding a battery are: the size of the store, variety and types of batteries that are stocked in the store, good value/pricing, hassle-free ordering, and satisfaction guarantees. An added benefit of a quality battery store is their ability to locate unusual special order products.

Our dependency on batteries is greater today than ever before. They power much of our lives, and their applications will continue to expand, increasingly reaching into every aspect of modern life.

Prof. Shakahshiri's Battery-Operated Chemical Reaction, 2010

How do you convert an electric hair dryer to a battery operated hair dryer?

I'm trying to convert an electric hair dryer to a battery operated hair dryer by connecting the wires of the hair dryer to 11 9-volt batteries. Will that work or do I still have to do something else? Please help... Thanks...
By the way, I'm just after the fan, not the heat...
Thanks...

You really can't convert an existing dryer without using a large inverter and a large auto battery.

I've never seen a portable hair-dryer.

The problem is that they use about 1200 watts, and with a 12 volt battery, that is 100 amps. Even a large auto battery will last only 30-45 minutes at that rate.

9 volt batteries will last for seconds.
